Meet Sean Simpson, Programs Manager!
“Crew Love” is an ongoing series that explores our team and gives insight as to why they believe in MORTAR’s mission.
What drew you to working with the team at MORTAR?
I was presented the opportunity through a connection from my previous employer, Public Allies. Once my Public Allies site was closed, the former Expansion Director encouraged me to apply with MORTAR. I was drawn to the job because I had experience working with NFTE (network for teaching entrepreneurship.) I myself am not an entrepreneur, but I respect the courage and skillset that are essential to entrepreneurship.
What is your role within the company?
Program Manager of Alumni Relations (with a little bit of Expansion in the mix)
How are you most looking forward to contributing to the entrepreneurs that we work with?
I most look forward to providing additional resources for our program alums. I like hearing what their needs are, making genuine corrections, and pointing them towards resources they may not be privy to, or have the time to research on their own.
When the work day is getting hectic, what song do you play in the office to help you stay on track?
It depends on the day, and the vibe of the room but, Fly as Me by Silk Sonic always keeps me going!
